RNC Treasurer Accuses Michael Steele Of Hiding $7 Million Debt


The treasurer of the Republican National Committee is making headlines now that he claims that RNC Chairman Michael Steele is responsible for failing to report $7 million in debt the group accumulated over time.

Treasurer Randy Pullen accused Steele in a memo to RNC budget committee members Tuesday of failing to report the impending debt to the Federal Election Commission.

Pullen also says Steele and his chief of staff Michael Leavitt tried to hide the issue by instructing staff not to report to him.

RNC officials have since denied any claims of wrongdoing and RNC Communications Director Doug Heye has released a statement in their defense saying,

“We have always followed the guidelines of our legal counsel and treasurer and have put in place additional oversight to ensure that all invoices are handled in a proper, open and transparent manner.”
